A small hamlet near the kingdom of Buckmris. Most of the traffic through the city are travelers passing through on their way to either Buckmris or Steadhelm.

Famed for it's farming, thanks to its extraordinarily warm, stable weather. Home to the Taern landmark of Malyon's Orchard, a massive plantation that provides fruit to much of western Taern.



  • Malyon's Orchard - A large orchard maintained by the elf Malyon of Ralahur. Employs a large number of townsfolk to maintain the massive amount of trees.
  • The Mystic Tankard - Tavern ran by famed wizard and retired adventurer Verchaypth "Verch" Laekinelth.
  • Temple of Eternal Summer - Temple of Pelor, god of the Sun, and patron of Summer. The presence of the Temple provides Rosedale with some of the most stable weather on Taern, constantly warm, even in the midst of Taern's winters. The Temple has stood well before the founding of Rosedale.
  • Megan's Collectibles - A store specializing in an inventory of assorted treasures. Stock is constantly changing as new items are "acquired".
  • Steel Sharp - Town Blacksmith, and home to weaponsmith Ganoro Cogyr.
  • Temple of the Eye - A small temple devoted to the worship of Ioun, goddess of Knowledge and the Arcane.
  • The Rose Water Market - A large market in Rosedale. Thanks to the presence of the orchard, merchants come from across Western Taern to buy and sell a variety of goods. The market provides a wonderful source of information for agents from nearby towns and kingdoms as well.
